Sixers 2017-18 schedule released

We already knew the Sixers' preseason schedule. We already knew they open the regular season Oct. 18 at Washington. We already knew they'll face the Knicks at the Garden on Christmas and the Celtics on Jan. 11 in London.

Now we know the complete schedule.

Ready for these 82 dates?

The Sixers will hold their first home game on Friday, Oct. 20, against the Celtics.

The Sixers will play 14 sets of back-to-back games. This is notable because last season Joel Embiid did not play in consecutive games. No word if that will be lifted this season, or if a similar restriction will apply to Ben Simmons in his return from a foot injury.

There are also 14 national TV games (the local television schedule hasn't been announced yet).

Ten of the first 14 games are on the road, and that includes a West Coast trip.

Here are key games to circle:

First game against Lonzo Ball: Nov. 15 in Los Angeles. The Lakers will play in Philadelphia on Dec. 7.

Defending champion Warriors: Nov. 11 at Golden State, Nov. 18 in Philadelphia.

LeBron James and the Cavaliers: Nov. 27 and April 6 in Philadelphia, Dec. 9 and March 1 in Cleveland.

Markelle Fultz vs. Jayson Tatum: Oct. 20 in Philadelphia, Jan. 11 in London (counts as a home game), Nov. 30 and Jan. 18 in Boston.

Christmas Day: Dec. 25 against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
